More than £1,000 raised in memory of fatal A15 crash victim
More than GBP1,000 has been raised in less than 24 hours for the family of Andrew Naylor, who died following a fatal crash on the A15 near Market Rasen. Lincolnshire Police say a man in his thirties was killed following the collision between two cars and a truck on the A15 at Caenby Corner, and that the man's next of kin have been informed. It happened at 5.56am on Tuesday, July 20, and the police say that the victim of the incident was driving a blue X-type Jaguar, with the other two vehicles involved being a white Vauxhall and a Renault truck.
The victim of the crash was named locally as Andrew Naylor, a Lincoln-based physiotherapist, and a fundraising campaign to support his family was shortly established. It was set up by Esme Hall, a friend of Andrew's, who told Lincolnshire Live: "The money is going to go to his family for funeral costs and just to support them. "It's a way of saying thank you for all he's done for the fitness community, as well as for everyone else he's helped."
On the fundraising page, Esme added: "We want to raise money to show our gratitude to Andy Naylor and everything he's done, not only for the fitness community in Lincoln and the surrounding areas, but as an amazing friend as well. "We can all say on various levels how Andy has helped us physically, mentally or emotionally. "The list of amazing things he's done for us is endless and I'm sure we can all back that statement."
At the time of writing, more than GBP1,300 has been raised for Andrew's family - with some individuals donating as much as GBP200. Paying tribute to Andrew, his friend Lynsey Hind told Lincolnshire Live yesterday that he had a "heart of gold". She said: "I'm absolutely devastated.
I worked closely with Andy at Performance Gym. He was the most caring, funny and sarcastic guy I've ever met and had a heart of gold. "He was amazing with all his clients, who I know speak very highly of him.
"He was one of the best and he will be sadly missed by so many people." A minute's silence will be held in Andrew's memory later today at the Performance Gym in Lincoln. You can donate to the page here
